Wine Tasting Note: Domaine de Lauroux Cuvée Confiance, 2000, VdP Côtes de Gascogne, France.
Available from Planet of the Grapes for £6.
A blend of 45% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc thrown into a little oak for six months. Quite Bordeaux in style on the the nose with a cedar-led blackcurrant aroma. But the palate is quite soft with the tannins appearing gently on the finish. Opening with rounded blackfruit flavours there is a hint of mint, of cherries and a touch of spice before those tannins lick around the gums.
Initially the wine is a touch flabby, lacks a shot of acidity, but ends nice enough. Of course with food this is hardly noticeable; a quality steak ciabatta sandwich was a rather good accompaniment.
